    I am starving and I really can't cook, I keep having to resort to fast food and I got ill because of it. Could some one tell me some stuff that I could make on a day to day basis that is easy cheap quick and healthy. I have a lot of contact hours so I would like to meal prep. today I had 9 till 6 and my lecturers said that we have more hours than medicine students. thanks in advance.

    Pesto pasta is great, just boil some pasta and once cooked, add pesto and some grated cheese. It’s best served piping hot or cold!

    For really basic food, you can grab a massive bag of rice and pasta for cheap at most supermarkets, Tesco, Morrison's etc. With that, you can make a load of stuff, if you don't have a lot of time you can just throw some butter in, if you have more time you can make all sorts of combinations by throwing in cream, peas, bacon, seeds, vegetables, all sorts. As for full on recipes, there are loads online, I'm pretty sure the bbc website has cheap meal recipes where you can also check how much it would cost in the shop near the bottom.

    Might be best to do some food prep. Provided your flat has a freezer, get a bunch of tubs and fill them with rice, chicken and broccoli (A staple dieting meal) and then freeze them. You can reheat them as the week progresses

    Woah, that sounds like a good diet, much better than mine lol. I'm not properly educated in this but I think that list covers every food group; you won't be deficient in anything. Problem is though, it might take up too much time and effort to get that food every day but if you live close to a market/supermarket, it shouldn't be too much hassle

    you can make curries and freeze the leftovers for later in the week, supermarkets also have premade sauces so it doesn't take too long to cook, doubt it's healthy tho

    i was just thinking that it might be bad fo me if i eat the same stuff constantly, because the oatmeal, pasta and rice are all carbs and im not to clued about stuff like this but could this make me insulin resistant and cause diabetes. sorry if this sounds stupid.

    Stir fry is always good- cant go wrong with veg and chicken. Noodles can be added to it as well.
    Fajitas are good as well- bulk it up with loads of veggies and use spices.
    Things like soup, curry and spag bol can be made in large batches so you can freeze it, all you'd have to do is heat it up when you want to eat it.
